First steps to take

This section explains the first steps you need to take in running a credit and debt matter:

  • collate relevant documents;
  • request that enforcement proceedings be put on hold;
  • deal with debt collectors and inform the client of their rights in relation to debt collection; and
  • work out if the client is judgment proof and wishes to rely on this.
